  1. Hello,
    It could be a problem with a overheating, what type of cooling, does the graphic card have ?
    Mostly of times, there could be a problem card is not recceving enough power, and it could be broken beacuse of overheating.
    Check your BIOS settings for Primary Graphics Adapter, which is under Advanced -->chipset Configuration. For some reason, the default value is PCI if you've never touched this setting. Change it to PCI Express.
